Say, that reminds me of another amusing anecdote...this guy comes up to me on the street and tells me he hasn't had a bite in three days. Well I knew what you meant, but just to be funny, I took a big bite out of his jugular vein. Then he was yelling and screaming and bleeding all over and I'm like "Hey, come on, don't you get it?" But he just keeps rolling around on the sidewalk, bleeding and screaming "AAAH!!! AAAAAAAHH!!! AAAAAAAAAAHH!!!" and just completely missing the irony of the whole situation. Man, some people just can't take a joke, y'know?
"Tell you what, Leto, I won't fight with you. Zeus' wives are pretty tough customers. You have my permission to boast openly that you have beaten the daylights out of me."
